Where would we be without all our accessories? I actually managed to pack light for once realising that just because my suitcase is large-ish doesn’t mean I have to fill it to bursting, especially when I always leave Devon with an assortment of delicious homemade jams and chutneys (super mum alert!).
So here are the accessories I can’t quite live without at the moment. The perfect assortment of shoe types and various coloured metals, meaning I only needed to bring a tshirt and trousers. WIN! Have a good weekend and if you want to see more from my Devon roaming, you can find me on instagram under girlalamode.
I’ve been a sucker for a petrol finished shoe since these Dr Martens came out a few years ago. I’m sad to say those very shoes are now caked in mud and accompany me on many a dog walking expedition.. Sorry shoes! I won’t be letting that happen to these babies though.
Tucked in the corner of Dover St Market my instagram inspiration became a reality, and even though I know I probably shouldn’t have, the promise of a self imposed shopping ban until the Antwerp stock sales next month sealed the deal. Its also worth mentioning that I ALWAYS buy heels, so it was about time I got some nice flats. Welcome home!
New tortoiseshell beauties from Hardy Amies. I love rose tinted sunglasses as they make everything look so much brighter, which is handy when living in England.

I didn’t think it was possible to love anything more than Moxham’s leather pieces; that was until I saw the new collection featuring totally metalware at the Bengt event last week! The “wearable construction” really comes to life with easy clip-able gold clasps on each side and giant eyelets and chain. It’s safe to say, this won’t be leaving my wrist for a while.
London is non stop rain today, so unfortunately no outfit shots! I did manage to sneak outside during a dry spot to capture my rings though. Hope you all had a good weekend!
New Acne sunnies! My boyfriend says they make me look like Elton John but I’m not going to let that ruin it for me. What do boys know anyway!
New in: Graphic matt and shine clutch by Kzeniya, now available to buy in Selfridges. My bag collection has been growing rapidly as of late, I seemed to have clutches in every colours except black, and the two finishes won me over – perfect addition!
Apologies for the lack of posts as of late, if you follow me on Instagram (@girlalamode) you’ll be seeing sneak peaks of my SS13 collection! So exciting, and only 17 days to go!
This week I discovered new London based accessories label, KITE. Specialising in leather, their designs are minimal and clean with a strong focus on texture and material – a label after my own heart, I’m sure you know.
Kite was founded by designers Sally Kite and Grace Eden who between them have worked for Meadham Kirchoff, Halston and Marios Schwab, and despite only being around for one season, are already stocked at Shine in Hong Kong, and Darkroom. The edgy design of the mohawk clutches strike me as something I’d be gawking at walking around somerset house at fashion week or on the street; whilst the wallets and card holders are keeping it clean and classic in beautiful python and pony leathers.
What can I say, other than I need to get my hands on all of it?
Another rainy summer Sunday spent hiding in coffee shop, with much needed caffeine in hand, wearing my new favourite rose gold accessories and triple lace boots. I don’t mind the moody weather so much if it means I get to wear my favourite boots, all year round; – just not accompanied with an umbrella, a winter coat, sunglasses, and a bikini! Schizophrenic London, I still love you anyway.
You may remember that certain lunch I had with the Varg team and Maria Nilsdotter a few months back, well the ring I ordered finally arrived! It was a difficult choice as I could easily have worn them all, but fell in love with this style after I borrowed it in gold over fashion week last February. I decided on a smaller size so I can wear it above the knuckle, I usually have chunkier rings on anyway, so now I can wear them all together! So happy to add this little guy to the family.
